  • Jasper McLovin

    -Michelle from Spokane, WA
    Pet Name: Jasper McLovin Rochon

    My family and I took my hairy son Jasper McLovin for a walk at bowl and pitcher. We were not there long when Jasper leaped over the rock wall and fell about 300 feet down into the river. Luckily Jasper made it to the bank and we rushed him to the vet. Dr Peterson was waiting there for Jasper and I felt very confident with his care for him. Jasper had air in his chest cavity and it was getting worse as time went by. Without Dr Peterson's care for Jasper he would not have been able to breathe. Dr Peterson is a great vet and very caring. Without Dr Peterson I'm sure we would have lost Jasper. Thank you Dr Peterson. From the Rochon's

  • Dr. John Kuhn is the greatest

    -Susie Robbins from Spokane, WA
    Pet Name: Susie's Guinea Pig Motley Crew

    I have taken my guinea pigs and hamsters to Dr. Kuhn for years and I believe he is the best exotics vet in the entire area. He has done several surgeries on my guinea pigs, including 2 spays, and they came through it with flying colors. He is an expert on exotic animals, such as rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, birds, ferrets, and etc. I think his real expertise is with surgery. He removed a tumor from a tiny little robo hamster! He is compassionate, listens to you and your pet, very knowledgeable, and will be honest with you about your pet's quality of life. He has great passion for animals and their well being. He is easy to talk to and has a great sense of humor. I would recommend Dr. Kuhn for exotic pet owners because he is simply the best!!

  • North Division rocks

    -Kelly from Spokane, WA
    Pet Name: Raina, Symphony, and Mozart

    All the VCA staff have taken excellent care of my pets! Both my dogs have undergone surgeries under the amazing talents of Dr. Peterson and Dr. Kuhn. They are both wonderful vets. All the doctors at VCA are highly knowledgeable and always provide accurate diagnoses when my pets are ill. The preventative care is great, too. Love that they are open extended hours!

  • Miss Mica

    -Edward Byerly from Spokane, WA
    Pet Name: Miss Mica

    Pet Image Thank you for you helping me with Miss Mica. With TLC as she always gets she is all healed up and being her goofy self now.

  • Thank you, Dr. Righter.

    -Mattias Herzog from Spokane, WA
    Pet Name: Maximus

    This is a note to express my thanks to Dr. Righter and all of the people who did so much to ease our boy Max's suffering and mine as well yesterday.

    Max was a vital, beloved member of our family for almost 10 years. He had the softest ears, best smile, and most wonderful heart of any dog I've ever known. Enormous as he was, he felt that his place was on the couch, bed, bench, or anywhere else where he could rest his sweet head in our laps. He loved the snow, hated the rain, and was allergic to planet earth. We, in turn, couldn't help loving everything about him - even the tricks involved in getting him to eat his allergy pills, which he also hated and was usually wise to.

    When our natural son was born, our 2 year old Max welcomed him and loved him with patience and gentility uncommon in a rocket fueled juvenile Lab. As our son grew he relied on Max as a toddling aid, vegetable disposal unit, smell scapegoat, and general partner in crime.

    Unimaginable and heartbreaking as it was to part with our Max, his passage was certainly and greatly eased by the kindness and care of Dr. Righter and the many others who played a part in our impossible yesterday morning.

    Further, the empathy and compassion they expressed toward me in the midst of one of my life's hardest moments was so great I wonder if I'd have had the strength to do what needed to be done otherwise.

    I suppose it never occurred to me but I realized yesterday that great vets care for people every bit as much as the animals they lay hands on. Dr. Righter and all involved deserve the highest praise for the help they gave to all of us - especially our Max - yesterday. My family and I are and will forever be very grateful.

    As for Max, maybe God will have better luck stopping him from jumping up and kissing everyone who walks through the door. But, knowing Max, I doubt it.

  • Rosie

    -Robert from Spokane, WA
    Pet Name: Rosie

    Pet Image Over the years we have used the North Division Animal Medical Center for care of our dogs, most prominently our beloved Rosie. Recently we made the hard decision to end her suffering, and the staff -- especially Dr. Righter -- was caring and sensitive to our grief. I could not have asked for better treatment -- not just for Rosie, but at the time for me as well. A very gentle and caring staff. Thank you so much.
